Along the entire U.S.-Mexico border, the North American Development Bank (NADB) works with border communities to develop and finance infrastructure projects that improve the environment and health conditions. With the onset of COVID-19 and its increasing effects on these communities, the NADB Board of Directors established a temporary program to support communities dealing with the economic, health, and social impacts of the pandemic (“ProRec”). Through this program, two Texas border communities will be able to refinance existing debt while a third in Chihuahua will benefit from a US$1 million grant to improve wastewater collection infrastructure.
